Description

Our exclusive, locally made, turf-scented candles bring your senses to the cozy fireplace by the bar, the smouldering glow from the turf, the crackle of the coal, the warm sounds of friends and music humming all around.  Made from sustainable, smokeless soy wax and the unmistakable and familiar scent of turf, these candles are the perfect accompaniment to a snug evening in.

The label even features a brief story of a warming fire you might have once heard about.

‘One particularly harsh Winter, 1966 in Folkestone England, The Jimi Hendrix Experience had just finished a gig and were staying at bass player Noel Redding’s mother Maragret’s house. Perished with the cold Jimi asked Margaret if he could “stand next to your fire” to warm up. ‘Of Course’ replied Margaret, however the family dog, a big German Shepherd, had other ideas.. inspiring another famous line, “Move over Rover, and let Jimi take over.” Noel & Margaret spent numerous winter evenings in front of DeBarras famous fireplace which over the last 50 years has become a beacon of warmth & sanctuary to many. This candle is an olfactory nod to the fireplace & its talismanic role inspiring songs, stories & conversations allover the world since flame was stolen from the gods. ‘
